Important Differences in AG Candidates

*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***

 

On June 5, voters will help determine who becomes the state’s next Attorney General, California’s top law enforcement official.

Democratic voters have two distinct choices. Dave Jones or Xavier Becerra.

  • Voters can choose the candidate whose campaign has been funded by oil, tobacco and insurance companies, or they can choose Dave Jones who refuses those contributions.
  • Voters can choose the candidate who supports the death penalty, or they can choose Dave Jones who opposes the death penalty and will fight for criminal justice reform for our state.
  • Voters can choose the candidate who has not practiced law 24 of the last 25 years, or they can choose Dave Jones who has saved consumers over $3 billion as California’s insurance commissioner.

The choice is clear. The best candidate for Attorney General is Dave Jones.

Watch our newest ad which explains the differences! And don’t forget to share this on social media and forward this email to at least five friends!

John Cox smells blood

*** No candidate for Governor has been endorsed by the CDP ***

Delaine Eastin for Governor 2018

In recent years, we have begun to take for granted the fact that California is a blue state. But if you scratch the surface, Republicans have actually held the governorship for 23 of the past 34 years. Recent polling shows Republican John Cox gaining ground. Fox News Suggests John Cox Could Be California’s Next Governor.

Now, John Cox has launched an all-out assault on two of our male democratic opponents. Cox Brings Up Affairs of Male Democratic Opponents Newsom and Villaraigosa affairs coming to TV ads in California.

Right now, California is leading the resistance to Trump. But Cox is hitting hard on the unfortunate reality that California is failing too many of our own residents on a daily basis. And Cox is pointing out that if one of these two candidates is in the runoff, a republican could pull it off.

Voters are looking for a change, and even though one candidate has been running for governor for over TEN years, and spent MILLIONS of dollars, he has never polled above 30%.    

Delaine Eastin is the real change voters are looking for. In the past few weeks, nearly 500,000 people have viewed our first video. Over 100,000 have now viewed our second video about Delaine’s willingness to stand up to pharmaceutical companies. We have over 1,000 volunteers making calls and texting voters. 

We aren’t interested in tearing down our opponents, we are interested in elevating Delaine’s clear and honest message about how she will lead us forward. Can you donate today, so we can hit 1,000,000 views on Delaine’s videos by the end of the week?

Making some big decisions

*** No candidate for Governor has been endorsed by the CDP ***

This week, my team and I are going to make some big decisions about our plans for these last days before the primary.

I’m hoping you’ll chip in now so we can not only discuss how to continue spreading our message loudly and clearly across California, but actually expand our outreach even farther.

Will you chip in whatever you can to help us reach our goal before tonight’s end-of-month deadline?

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in $5 »

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in $25 »

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in $50 »

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in another amount »

As the Los Angeles Times said last week, “for most Californians the race for governor is just starting.”

If we can reach them, we have an amazing opportunity to surge forward in the primary. Our new TV ad is already making a difference.

But I need your help to reach our goal tonight before we roll out our plan for May.

Chip in now, before tonight’s deadline, and make sure we have the resources to keep fighting for a brighter vision for California.

Thank you for making this campaign possible,

John
